About Fever

Back to the top

A fever is an increase in your body temperature and is a common indicator that your body is fighting an infection. A normal temperature for most people (adults and children) is in the range of 97-99 degrees Fahrenheit. A fever occurs when the body’s temperature is over 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit. A higher-than-normal temperature without any other symptoms is not usually a cause for concern. In most cases, fevers are usually accompanied by other signs of illness.

These symptoms include:

  • Chills and shivering
  • Sweating
  • Muscle aches and weakness
  • Headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Dehydration

A fever may be caused by several different health conditions.

Common causes of fever include:

  • Viral or bacterial infections (including common colds, flu, and mononucleosis)
  • Bronchitis
  • Strep throat
  • Heat exhaustion
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis
  • Some medications

Most cases of fever are easily treated and do not require much medical attention. However, a temperature over 102 degrees for children, or over 103 degrees for adults may signify a serious health condition. If you or your child has a fever over 102-103 degrees Fahrenheit or has had a fever for longer than 5 days, contact your doctor right away.

Treatment Options

Below is a list of medications commonly used to manage and treat fevers, which a doctor or provider can prescribe to you for just $5 through SesameRx.

Please note that all prescriptions are at the discretion of your provider.

In most cases, a low-grade fever is easily treated with medication and self-care remedies. In more severe cases, or when a fever is caused by a bacterial infection, prescription medication may be needed to address the underlying health conditions of a fever. Below is a list of ways to care for a fever. During your appointment, talk to your health care provider about what treatment options are best for you.

FAQs

Fever Care

Should I see a doctor in-person or online?

It depends. Telehealth platforms like Sesame make it easier than ever to see a doctor online from the comfort of your home through virtual visits. These are real-time video chats with doctors and providers that are used to address symptoms, discuss prescriptions, and screen for health care conditions. Telehealth (also known as telemedicine) is a convenient way to see a health care provider without requiring the commute and waiting rooms of office visits.

In-person visits, however, are vital health services. Certain conditions and specialty care services cannot be diagnosed or performed via a telehealth visit. Lab testing, for instance, often requires an in-person appointment at a doctor's office. Similarly, some physical exams, chronic condition consultations, and urgent care needs require in-person care. Some patients feel more comfortable receiving their care through in-person doctor visits, and many telehealth services require in-person visits before a condition can be definitively diagnosed.

Health care marketplaces like Sesame offer both in-person and virtual care options. If you're unsure whether or not you need to see a provider face-to-face, we recommend that you book a video doctor visit to discuss your concerns and talk through any symptoms you may be experiencing. If an in-person doctor appointment is required, you can easily book a visit through Sesame's scheduling platform.

Why would I use telehealth instead of an in-person visit?

Telehealth is primarily used to increase access to quality health care for individuals around the world. Many people have a hard time finding a quality clinic, or do not have the time to sit in waiting rooms before an appointment. Currently, the coronavirus pandemic has made people nervous about office visits. Telehealth can help calm these anxieties by letting you receive your routine check-up or discuss non-urgent symptoms without having to leave home.

What is telehealth?

Telemedicine (also sometimes called "telehealth") is a form of virtual care that healthcare professionals offer patients looking for efficient, flexible care. With telemedicine, you can speak with a doctor about your symptoms and work to develop a treatment plan that's right for you - without the hassle of having to drive to different doctors' offices or navigate confusing insurance copays. If you've already seen a doctor and need a second opinion or more clarity on your condition, you can schedule a quick and easy telemedicine appointment to get your questions answered on your own time.

What is a telehealth appointment?

Telehealth appointments also called telemedicine are medical visits that take place over face-to-face real-time video with fully licensed medical professionals including doctors or nurse practitioners.

What are the benefits of telehealth and video visits?

Over the past few years, telehealth has transformed the healthcare landscape giving patients better access to quality doctors and providers. Still, some may be unfamiliar with telehealth and its benefits.

In the simplest terms, telehealth is a means of managing your health with the use of digital platforms, video, and virtual consults with online doctors and providers. This includes:

- Virtual appointments: the ability to see your doctor virtually with video consultations. This is perfect for both new patients and those with ongoing appointments that don’t require an in-person visit. Despite what you may have heard, many conditions can actually be treated over video, including toothaches, moles, warts, UTIs and other vaginal infections, and more.

- Correspondence between doctors: By promoting faster, more efficient means of communication, telehealth allows for doctors to better coordinate and address patient needs.

- Virtual health records: Apps, sometimes called personal health record systems (PHRs) allow for the viewing of health care records from a web-enabled device.

- Remote Monitoring: Apps that upload medical information, such as lung function, blood pressure, and blood glucose readings, so that your doctor can monitor you virtually.

How do I access my telehealth appointment?

After you book a video appointment, you will receive both an initial confirmation and a reminder via email and text.

There are three ways in which a video visit can be accessed:
- Select "Join virtual appointment" from the booking confirmation email.
- If you have an existing account or created one at purchase, log in at sesamecare.com, navigate to 'My appointments,' and select "Join virtual appointment."
- Click the link in the text message sent to you 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time.

We suggest using Google Chrome, Firefox, or Safari to connect to your visit.

While you can't be tested for COVID-19 over video, Sesame does offer video COVID-19 screenings as well as in-person testing across the country.

Should I book an urgent care visit or go to the emergency room?

If you're experiencing a medical emergency or any life-threatening symptoms or conditions, you call 911 immediately or visit the emergency room or emergency department of a local clinic as soon as possible. If you have an urgent need for a non-life-threatening condition, you should be able to address your concerns through an urgent care visit. Note that on Sesame, urgent care visits may not necessarily be through a clinic that's part of the urgent care association or some kind of body that offers urgent care accreditation.

Can doctors on Sesame treat emergencies?

Doctors on Sesame may be able to treat or diagnose medical conditions requiring urgent care, such as rashes, pink eye, urinary tract infections, yeast infections, sinus infections, sore throat, STDs, and more with online urgent care visits.

Can my provider prescribe medication?

Yes, physicians on Sesame can prescribe a wide range of medications, which can be useful for infections, allergies, and other acute ailments. Please note that they will not prescribe certain drugs, such as narcotics or medications that have been designated controlled substances through telehealth.

Otherwise, many of the prescriptions available in an office setting or urgent care can be prescribed if your clinician deems it appropriate.
